Title: Michael Duncan
Title: On Composite Objects and Their Properties

The orthodox view of composition has it that composite objects are  
numerically distinct from the objects that compose them, taken together or  
separately. The rival view – composition as identity – says that composite  
objects are numerically identical to the objects that compose them, taken  
together. Thus, a chair is, on this view, identical to some atoms arranged  
in the shape of a chair. I will argue that accepting the orthodox view is  
more costly than it may initially seem. Unlike composition as identity, it  
requires giving up on a natural and seemingly widely held view about what I  
will call “heterogeneous properties”: properties like being black and  
white, and being polka-dotted. Furthermore, all of the known alternatives  
to that view face serious difficulties.
